Bread and Puppet

Bread and Puppet is a radical puppetry group that has been producing large-scale performances since the 1960s. The group is so named for the combination of fresh bread and puppets that their audiences enjoyed when the troop was in their original loft location in the Lower East Side of New York City.

This series was first broadcast in December of 2002. I would like to dedicate its appearance here to the memory of my friend Taylor Stoehr, who patiently urged it into existence. Taylor and I got to know each other when he took an interest in my book Ivan Illich in Conversation. (Illich had been a good friend of Paul Goodman, and Taylor was Goodman's literary executor, as well as the author, by then, of several books and long articles on Goodman's life and work.) As our acquaintance grew into...

Every summer for several decades the Bread and Puppet Theater created a two day Domestic Resurrection Circus at their home and farm in Glover, Vermont, with tree-size puppets and tiny marionettes depicting events in everyday life and scenes of political satire.  At dusk a pageant was performed by up to 200 children, men, and women on the grassy amphitheater and hills behind the farm.  The last pageant was performed in 1998. Men With Teeth (1994 - 20 minutes) Gates of Hell (1998 - 40 minutes)

In 1971 President Richard Nixon gave Lt. William Caulley a full pardon after Calley was courtmartialed for the 1968 My Lai Massacre. The Birdcatcher in Hell was Bread and Puppet Theater's response to these events. The play is structured around a Japanese kyogen- the comic interlude between acts of classical Noh drama. Filmed and produced by Sue Bettman this dvd documents a revival of a show created and performed in 1971. Filmed in May 2014 at the Flynn Center in Burlington, VT, the show...
